Police have located and arrested a man in connection with the disappearance of Cape Town girl Tazne van Wyk, 8, who went missing almost two weeks ago. The man was found in another province.
Van Wyk was last seen walking to a tuck shop near her home in Connaught Estate, Elsies River.
Police earlier identified Moehydien Pangaker, 54, as someone who could help with the case.
Regional police spokesperson Captain Lariane Jonker did not name the person who was arrested but confirmed that "the alleged suspect who can apparently be linked to the disappearance of the minor child was arrested in the Cradock police precinct" around 22:15 on Monday.
She said the suspect would appear in the Cradock Magistrate's Court soon.
"The missing minor has not been found yet."
Two police sources close to the investigation had earlier confirmed to News24 that Pangaker was arrested.
Last week, Community Safety MEC Albert Fritz offered a R10 000 reward for anyone who had information leading to the location of the missing girl and the whereabouts of Pangaker.
Western Cape police have not yet commented on the arrest.
